Hey folks, well it's been a super long time since i have posted anything. i haven't necessarily fallen off the eating healthy wagon, but i did gain a few pounds on my vacation(who doesn't?) Anyway, i have said before that i lost my first 30-35 lbs eating low carb. I remember I didn't really count carbs, i just stayed away from sugars, breads, pasta ect... Well, I wanted to start the induction stage again for a while to get going again and started looking at labels & OMG I am over 20 grams alot. My question to you folks is...how do YOU stay under or at 20 grams of carbs per day?? Any suggestions?

Hi all, been a while again. No particular reason, just busy I guess. I had an exciting shopping experience last week. My size 16W jeans were starting to fall off. So my daughter and I went to Cato to get some new jeans. I thought I wanted to try a size 14W but I couldn't find any. I asked the lady there for help, she said that there is a such thing, but not many out there, so she gave me the one pair that they had & asked why I thought I needed a 14W, i explained & she looked at me & said here, try these...I did & they fit GREAT! Then I looked at the tag...A size 14 in misses....not womens! I just about cried in the dressing room. I called my daughter in there(mind you she is about to turn 13) and she said...."whoa mom!! You look hawwwwt in those jeans..turn around" so i did & she said..."oh yeah, your bottom looks great" I died right there! I couldn't believe it! So, Needless to say, I was stoked. I bought 2 pair.
On a side note: I am starving today and I couldn't run up the stairs on lunch like I have been doing. I realized I just havent eaten enough today. I haven't been tracking my calories because, well, I don't know why. I am just trying to eat as healthy as possibe and drink a ton(literally) of water! Hope everyone is doing well!

Good Morning All,
ITS FRIDAY!!! Good thing too, I am worn out from the week! I am in need of some good workout adive today! I have lost 53lbs since I started this crusade, and that is SUPER AWESOME...except, I am losing it everywhere by my big ole stomachs. I literally have 2 stomachs! My upper stomach stops at my waist, my waist is thinning nicely then my lower stomach. My family calls it the Sawyer Gut. My granddad Sawyer was an extremely large man from his waist to his thighs. He was definately pear shaped! Now that I have lost this weight everywhere else, I look pregnant & in my opinion, misproportioned & I HATE IT! Hubbs says all i need to do is crunches...I have been doing crunches and I can feel and see a slight difference in my upper stomach, but not my lower. In fact, either my lower is getting bigger, or my upper is getting smaller and it just makes my lower look bigger! IDK but I am tired of it!! So..What can I do? Any suggestions??
Second question?? My boobs are not getting any smaller either. I hate it! I have gone from a 46 to a 38 but I am still a back painful cup size H. Is there anything I can do to get those babies smaller & more firm without surgery??
Third & Final question?? I love fruit. When I get a sweet tooth, it is for fruit, not candy or cakes or what not. Fruit is super high in carbs. If I am primarily low carb, what is the best fruit to have? I realize that I can't go nuts, but is an apple or a clementine orange ok?? Everyday??
I hope everyone has a great day!
BTW...my daughters basketball team, the Lady Warriors, are now in the championship!! They have only lost 1 game this entire season & it was thier very first game. So Proud!!
So proud of these girls!!

Good morning friends.
I am feeling a bit discouraged! Yesterday was a great day, I ate good, but I did not get to walk on my lunch like I wanted to. My daughter calls me from school & says that she forgot to bring her basketball jersey with her. It was a MUST that she had it! So, instead of getting to walk, I drove 16 miles to my house & then another 15 or so to the school then 20 back to work. HUGE round trip...that doesn't bother me, that's the joys of parenthood! I told myself right after that phone call that I would go home, fix dinner for Hubbs & B & then go walk the neighborhood for an hour. It was 50 degrees & I was all siked up to put on a hoodie & beanie & head out! I had already done several resistance band excersises at my desk, several wall push ups and squats on my bathroom breaks & even threw in some jump squats when no one was looking! I had this... I was easily going to make up for not walking. Plus, an older gentleman that I work with really made my day yesterday by telling me that I look FABULOUS & that he is real proud of me in how well I have done losing weight. That made my day!! So what happened?? CHIPS & HOT SAUCE!! It is my weakness. I made the family taco ring for supper. It is so good!! SOOOO GOOOD! I was planning to go walk while they ate. My husband decided he wanted to go walk with me so I waited. While I waited, I let the chips & salsa get the better of me. I ended up eating enough to fill me up, then had a piece of taco ring on top of that. Then....here is the bad part.... WE DIDN'T GO WALK. We both used the excuse that it was now too chilly & dark to go & NCIS was coming on. OMG So now I am stupid full & didn't burn hardly any calories for the day. I pouted for the rest of the night over it.
Well, I get up this morning with a better attitude, it was one mess up evening, today is a new day! Although I had to wake up at 4:30am to be able to get my girl to BBall practice on time, I was in a fab mood! Hair looks good, make up looks good, everything went smoothly..YES! I had, what I thought was a good breakfast. Egg whites, 3/4 cup ground sausage, some grape tomatoes, glass of juice & a string cheese stick!! YUMMO..it was so good. Then I go to track my breakfast...after i had already ate it...and HOLY MACARONI...660 calories in 3/4 cup of ground pork sausage. I never knew, never even thought to look. It was already cooked from a few nights ago, so there was no package to double check. WOW...so my breakfast ended up being over 700 calories. DARN.
My plan? Well, do the best I can today. I will do the normal bathroom excersises, drink my water, walk on lunch & both breaks, & go to the gym tonight. I may even stay an hour instead of my normal 30 minutes in the circuit room.
Now that I have gotten all of this off of my chest...I feel a little better. I just know it's going to be discouraging again when i get hungry in a couple of hours. I brought good foods, but still!!!
Hope everyone else has a good day!! Hopefully I can get over this & get my fab mood back!
